Very well done to Erica Masna from Calne Smartt who completed the London Marathon in a brilliant 4hrs 26mins. Erica was fortunate to get the club's allocated place for the event.
Calne Smartt Training Weekend.
Another successfull training weekend at Burnbake Lodges in Corfe, Dorset, despite the weather. It began with a sea swim on the Friday evening in the beautiful Studland bay. A parkrun in nearby Poole on the Saturday morning. A get together for drinks, a chilly and a quiz on the Saturday evening. A choice of a brisk walk or cycling Sunday morning follolwed by lunch at a local pub. Unfortunately the Saturday afternoon paddle boarding session was called off due to horrendous weather conditions.
Mark Cawley, Andy Gilbert and Gaz Hanna from Calne Smartt took on the Dragon Ride. Starting in Port Talbot South Wales, it follows a winding route through the Brecon Beacons with almost 7000ft of climbing and finishing back at Port Talbot.
There was a very good turnout from Calne Smartt for the recent Corsham 10k. There was very good individual results from Catherine Cole, with a category position of 9th in the women's race and Kevin Cole with a category position of 10th in the men's. Ben Weston was the quickest of Calne Smartt in a time of 39:42.
Congratulations to Calne Smartt's Richard Smith and Helen Warren who both recently completed the Cotswold 113 middle distance triathlon. The event at Ashton Keynes comprized of a 1.9km swim, a 90km cycle, followed by a 21km run.
It was the first time that either had competed over this distance, both finishing with a credible time.
